How To Mark Stitch Lines for Embroidery on Felted Fabric Easter Eggs (and Balls)

P1180253

Marking straight lines on felted fabrics can be a bit tricky. Chalk barely stays in place long enough to get the job done and marking pens seem to find the uneven texture a challenge. So I tried using masking tape and to my surprise it worked perfectly!

Masking tape clings just enough to stay in place while stitching and releases without pulling the fibers. I used the same pieces over and over - no need for a fresh piece each time a line needs to be marked.
